5 Reasons to Use Recruiters: Candidates
1. Recruiters save you time
Recruiters take some of the stress out of job searching. They put in time and effort to place candidates, which takes some of the work from you. Recruiters advertise open jobs that you might not have known of otherwise, which broadens your opportunities.
2. Network on a larger scale
Although you might have many connections, you might not have the necessary ones to find and obtain jobs alone. Recruiters can speak on your behalf directly to the companies and ensure that you are being considered. Sometimes resumes can get lost within a pile, but recruiters push your resume to the top.

Recruiters have the “inside scoop.” They know what qualities and skills will make you and your resume stand out from the others. Recruiting agencies are aware of the company culture and can let you know what to expect and what the companies expect from you.
4. Help with interview coaching and resume assistance
